Question about Kenmore 98702 Stacked Washer/Dryer
I opened the front loading door to the dryer. I grabbed the drum with one hand, and I could move it up and down freely. It is resting on the door panel. I'm guessing this is the source of the noise. When I looked in the back of the unit, I noticed black rubbery/powdery substance where the drum is fastened in the center.
Before I go any further, taking the drum and things apart...Is this something simple that I can fix, or should I suck it up and call a Pro?
I have a Kenmore Stacked Washer/Dryer (Model 417.91702000) that has had the same thing happen. I have replace mine twice . . .It is the rear dryer bearing.
You can purchase a kit that contains everything to replace it.
You have to work from the front, all the way to the back.
Make sure that you also check the felt pad glide on the front door panel (the drum rotates on this). You may need to replace it also, it should have teflon pads built into the felt that the drum rests on . . .
